"I don't understand that. Someone needs to explain why other teams have one day extra," Solskjaer said. "We tried to Google that.

“Should Uefa change that? Definitely, 100%. Someone needs to explain why a Wednesday night first leg becomes a Tuesday second leg in the Champions League."

However Uefa rules say each club will play the same number of games across both nights.

Barcelona hold a 1-0 lead ahead of the second leg at Camp Nou on Tuesday. Barca drew 0-0 at Huesca on Saturday, rotating all their players, while Man United beat West Ham 2-1 with more than a few who will start on Tuesday featuring.
